Recent Anti-jewish Attacks in London Described at British Labor Party Convention

A delegate from the Hackney District of London called on the British Labor Party today, at its annual convention here, to oppose more sharply fascism and its manifestations in England.

The speaker charged that this borough had been transformed into a “cockpit for political hooliganism” by fascist elements and described to the conference the series of recent anti-Jewish attacks perpetrated there.

Prof. Harold J. Laski, replying for the Labor Party executive, said that James Chuter Ede, the Home Secretary, had been “generous in his understanding of the situation” and had given much attention to the problem of controlling the new fascist menace in Britain. He said that Chuter Ede would keep the problem in mind.
